About Me

My photo

I have completed bits of my EM training from India. Currently I am boarded with credentials from Christian Medical College, Vellore and also from the prestigious Royal College of Emergency Medicine, UK.  I am currently working in London as an A&E doctor, trying to appreciate the differences in the practise and culture of Emergency Medicine across different healthcare systems. I have always been an avid FOAMed supporter because FOAMed played an indispensable role during the days of my initial training. Through this blog, I aspire to disseminate knowledge and stay up to date with the EM literature.

The other "ACS": Abdominal Compartment Syndrome!

Hi, This week I have a podcast on ACS --> Abdominal Compartment Syndrome!

As Emergency Physicians we should be familiar with issues requiring the ED/ICU care. And now, Intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) leading to abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) are increasingly recognised in the ICU, often associated with abdominal trauma and in patients requiring fluid resuscitation, such as those with septic shock, major abdominal surgery, burns, bowel obstruction, ascites, etc. ACS is the progression to end-organ dysfunction if IAH is not recognised and treated. 

Lets listen to the podcast to find out some more details, Check out the show notes too!
